You just need to take one step after the next. You just need to listen to your heart and let it shine through. You don’t need to do everything all at once. You don’t need to come up with a secret formula for success. The main problem people have on their road to achieving their vision is a lack of forward progress. The reason people lack forward progress is twofold. First, most people are overwhelmed by all the things they need to do so they try to come up with a special ‘hack’ to have things magically work out perfectly. Second, most people also are so concerned with the end result of being successful and only focus on the ‘overnight’ successes they see that they try to do everything yesterday. I am speaking from my own experience as well on these insights btw … I still do get caught in these patterns of behavior sometimes and then I also do my very best to nip it in the bud right away.
To be great at anything you must practice and it takes time to build and create great work, especially a masterpiece. The daily repetition of a skill is what creates works that we look upon with wonder and will create unimaginable new works in the future. Solve one small problem after the next until you get to your destination.
A good example of this is Matt Damon’s scene from “The Martian” below:
You also must connect your heart with what you are doing. You must have your heart in it because that provides you with the fuel to keep on going when you feel defeated. When your heart is in it the end result is also irrelevant because you are already at the end result each moment. You love what you are doing each small step of the way. The reason you are moving towards a vision is because growth is a human need you want to fulfill and challenges are what make life worth living. You aren’t moving towards a vision to achieve and be significant because that pattern leads to an unfulfilled life.
When your heart is in it you are sending the vibration of love into your work and people can feel it. They feel your essence and it leads to them sharing your work with people they care about. Two people each share it with two more people. Those people share it with two more people and so on. That is how viral success happens … small steps from the heart.
